    Not to bad even the picky ain al people have to look twice to see its a cover. The only neg is the vin numbers get covered up and thats a dead giveaway.

    Re: coverlay dash cover

    the new one I got has a slot cut for the VIN. It looks ok "sitting" in place. just wondering if they squeak and creak a lot (if installed correctly)Steve

    I've done 6 of them and the ones I've done

    range from very good to near perfect. 5 of Mine were on 6ers which are a little harder than the 5er IMHO. When my 5er cracks a bit more it will get one. Just don't be afraid to trim it...alot...my last one, after trimmed, I haven't even glued in and no one has noticed. Only seen one negative post from a 6er guy in Las Vegas and his looked terrible after a year...heat I guess. 2 of mine are over 5 years and still look excellent. The carpet cover sucks compared to it IMHO.

    I finally got round to installing another on an

    e24 and it turned out as good as they get. Just about perfect. You have to do ALOT of trimming...the e28 should be much easier.
